Perfect Rice - Stovetop


Rice is one of those things that is extremely easy for me yet I know so many people who resort to instant because they think it is difficult or they don't have a good method.  This is how I learned to make it and it never fails.  If you want it done "instantly" try our recipe for pressure cooker perfect rice.



White Rice

Ingredients
  • 1 part rice (long grain, plain, jasmine, basmati etc)
  • 1 1/2 - 2 parts liquid (water, broth, stock, juice)**
  • Dash salt* optional
Cooking Directions
  1. Put rice in pot with a tight fitting lid, add liquid and salt* if using.
  2. Cover and turn burner to high and bring to boil. Turn down as low as you can (I have an electric stove and use the simmer setting) and set timer for 17 minutes.
  3. Turn off, uncover and fluff with fork.
  4. If you want your rice to separate and be fluffy, rinse before cooking. For sticky rice, don't rinse.
  5. *Omit salt if using broth, stock, etc
  6. **The more liquid you use the softer the rice


Brown Rice

Ingredients
  • 1 part brown rice
  • 2 parts liquid (water, broth, stock, juice)**
  • Dash salt* optional
Cooking Directions
  1. Put rice in pot with a tight fitting lid, add liquid and salt* if using.
  2. Cover and turn burner to high and bring to boil. Turn down as low as you can (I have an electric stove and use the simmer setting) and set timer for 40 minutes.
  3. Turn off, uncover and fluff with fork.
  4. **Omit salt if using broth, stock, etc
